Informative exhibition telling history of Hanko as Soviet Naval Base during 1940-41. Also a War Path behind the building. Also good coffee and doughnuts!

Hanko Front Museum and Bunker Museum Irma
Jul 2019 • Family
Hangon Rintamamuseo (Hanko Front Museum, Hangö Frontmuseum) is located on an authentic wartime Finnish-Soviet front line outside the city of Hanko. You find a museum building, an artillery hall and a one-kilometer long War Path there. They also have a stunt track for children and a very small cafeteria. In summer the museum is open every day. The museum is extremely interesting and they have all texts in English, too.

The museum also has another sight, which is situated in Skogby/Harparskog (address Mannerheimintie 57, Raasepori) 5.4 kilometers from this main museum. It is called Bunkkerimuseo or Bunkermuseum Irma. It is open only on summer weekends. However, this authentic and restored bunker is extremely interesting. They even have a sound show in the bunker. I highly recommend visiting Bunker Irma, too.

Interesting and touching visit at the old front line
Jul 2019 • Family
The museum is situated on the front line of the Finnish-Soviet Continuation War on Hankoniemi Cape. It offers information and exploring options both indoors and outdoors. I recommend visiting both areas. The old material is well presented. Our boys (ages 9 and 11) enjoyed the visit. The outdoor walking path offers children even their own “self-guided tour”. Just grab the leaflet from the cafe.
Cafeteria offered nice treats as well so it is worth to visit also just for a cup of coffee and “munkki” or other delicacies.

An interesting museum of the II world war in Hanko
Jun 2018 • Couples
The museum has been refurbished and now you can follow a logically built story about what happened in the Hanko area during the II world war. I learned a lot, as everone seem to be forgetting this south-west front when talking about world war II.
